    September 28, 2019 - Meh...Its probably one of the least interesting Phelan that I have had to date. These wines tend to me very muscular and full of tar and coffee...Not here....Seemed like an attempt at elegance that just missed. I have 2 more, to be continued....But time will not hurt this because now, its just Meh...Hold for 5 years or more.

    September 27, 2019 - Ard & David’s 50th birthday dinner (Chez David, Amsterdam, NL.): Not decanted. Solid, fresh, firm, ripe black fruit, spicy oak, lead pencil, tightly wound, needs time to unfold. Upward potential.

    September 4, 2019 - This wine is evolving at a glacial pace. Already enjoyable--delicious, like so many 2005s it will be so much better with five to seven more years of proper cellaring.

    Perfect cork; unquestioned provenance. Opened in the morning, decanted, and allowed to breath for eight hours. Served at 16 degrees.

    Deep, pure dark red colour. Great viscosity. Beautiful luster in the glass.
    Red fruits, a bit of oak and sage. Complex.

    Beautiful plushness with this wine; great richness and weight but with real savour and lift. The 50% merlot is really shinning through right now.

    Great food wine and I look to trying it again in 2023. Potential 92+ with some more bottle age

    September 1, 2019 - Erste sekundäre Noten, gefällt mir schon richtig gut, 1 Stunde in der Karaffe, Abgang bleibt schon länger als noch im Januar...wird besser aber ja, bereits 10 von 12 Flaschen weg. Was solls, ich mag Phelan Segur halt einfach...

    (Château Phélan-Ségur (St Estèphe)) This vintage seems very dense and withdrawn on the nose - and this seems quite typical, as the majority of the 2005s I have tasted recently are showing in this manner. But there is a reassuring tone to the fruit, not evolved but not straightforward either, with tinges of complexity, and with a black-liquorice density to it. The palate is very harmonious and well formed, with supple fruit laid over a very fine-boned structure of acid and tannin, which seems in total harmony with the wine. This has a super composition, with nothing out of place, coming across as quite harmonious and compelling . As I return to it later it seems even more and more aromatic. A brilliant effort.

    (Château Phélan Ségur) Dark red violet color; toasty oak, pain grillé nose; tasty, plush but tart cassis, red plum palate with the Cab Franc showing; medium finish (49% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc)

    (Chateau Phélan-Ségur St Estèphe) This has a very dark hue, and lovely, aromatic, dense, dark and rather gravelly fruit. The palate has a rather pure character with an appealing leanness, and a raft of attractive red fruits presented in a direct, very well defined frame. This certainly has a pleasing nature, backed up by good extract and substance. There is a lot of stuffing for the cellar here. Very good indeed.
